Hi all,

I've just gotten hold of a beautiful little c860 and I'm in love. There's just a few things I'd like to know.

1 - One of the main reasons I got a Zaurus is so that I could do web dev on it. I've tried installing Apache from the Cacko feed but I get this error when I try to start the service:
QUOTE
/home/QtPalmtop/bin/apachectl: /opt/QtPalmtop/bin/httpd: not found
/home/QtPalmtop/bin/apachectl: start: httpd could not be started

If you could point out what's wrong, or direct me to some info, I'd appreciate it. I'm using Cacko Light if that matters.

2 - I'm going to buy a micro-drive to plug in. If I compile some software e.g. Apache, is there a way to install it to the micro-drive? I'm not too hot on install options yet.

3 - Bearing in mind that I'm in the UK, what's the best place to get hold of CF gadgets? And is there such a thing as a CF splitter so I can have say, a micro-drive and a wireless card plugged in?

Any help at all would me much appreciated.

Most apps allow you to install on removable media. Some that have symlinks will need the media formatted as ext2. I don't know anything specific about Apache. I have never seen a CF splitter. For storage, you are better off getting a SD card (1GB are available) instead of a microdrive. This way you can keep it in the Zaurus and have the CF slot free for wifi cards and others.

If I remember correctly (there's some stuff in the forums about this) you have to do some linking to get apachectl to work starting apache. Simplest option for checking apache is working is to start httpd directly.
/home/www/bin/httpd start
should work if it's all installed correctly.

Hope that helps
